July 2017 Cartoon Punchline Competition

 

Well, the July 2017 EEWeb Cartoon Punchline Competition attracted some very interesting offerings (see the comments below). As usual, these entries had the EEWeb Elves scratching their heads trying to decide on the winner. Eventually, after much discussion and debate, they decided that the winning entry was "Whoa! That's a tricky 1", by EEWeb community member Kevin Angelo Ma.

A full-sized copy of this cartoon, adorned with Kevin's winning caption and signed by the artist is winging its way to him as we speak. Meanwhile, the runners up -- in no particular order (the EEWeb Elves aren’t very good at "order") -- were as follows:

Robin Salter

"Betsy, that's not a question. You're just calculating numbers until you're blue in the face."

Sean Ellis

"I imagine it's more complex than that."

David Ashton

"You've made 1 little mistake."

    "It Depends..." (this answer is almost always given to me by our networking guru when I ask him a networking question... :-)

    "i" don't know.....

    How did you get a job here?

    uhhm, who are you again?

    woah! thats a tricky "1".

    Betsy, that's not a question. You're just calculating numbers until you're blue in the face?

    Well Betty, the answer is the quotient property of square roots.

    I'll guess "What Are Poor Math Skills?" Alex.
  • by  Todd Hayden (edited)
    You always were a rule breaker Betty.
  • by  Todd Hayden (edited)
    Wow, and I used to think 80% comparative pay was unfair!
  • by  Todd Hayden (edited)
    Well Betsy, your argument is not too positive.
  • by  Kevin Angelo Ma (edited)
    I thought I'm the '1' who's odd..
  • by  David Ashton (edited)
    ...And your question is...??
  • by  David Ashton (edited)
    "i" know the answer! But I'm not telling you!!
  • by  Kevin Angelo Ma (edited)
    there is just so many "i's", maybe that is why you still can't find the "1"..
  • by  David Ashton (edited)
    OK... well i^4 = 1^4, so i = 1, OK?

    I'm liking this hole you are digging, please continue.
  • by  Todd Hayden (edited)
    I, for 1, think you're nuts!
  • by  Todd Hayden (edited)
    I don't know, sounds squarely to me.
  • by  Todd Hayden (edited)
    I, for 1, think you found the root of the problem.
  • by  Todd Hayden (edited)
    Betsy, may I loan you some money?
  • by  Todd Hayden (edited)
    Ah, the old "an i for an i, a sleuth for the truth" problem.
  • by  Edward Ouellette (edited)
    Why are you always so positive? The (square) root of a negative one can be seen by either a positive or negative "i".
  • by  Edward Ouellette (edited)
    Let me root out the problem. As a negative one, my "i" is not always positive.
  • by  Edward Ouellette (edited)
    The truth is: the root of a negative one is not always positive.
  • by  Edward Ouellette (edited)
    "i" spy the sign of the root of a negative one!
  • by  Edward Ouellette (edited)
    I think you don't comprehend the magnitude of your situation.
  • by  Edward Ouellette (edited)
    When expanding your principles, take care to root out the problem.
  • by  Sean Ellis (edited)
    We electronic engineers got around that problem years ago, simply by using "j" instead of "i".
  • by  Sean Ellis (edited)
    I imagine it's more complex than that.
